Never uploaded a movie before so we'll see if this works.

A movie I made of our trip in 2016. Enjoy.

Link works just fine...
Nice stuff, man. You had it all, heavy frost, skim ice, no bugs, doesn't get much better. Nice boats too. Thanks for putting that up, gets me even more excited for tomorrow!!

And hey, welcome to the forum. Who's stripper is that? Custom design, or is it something we all know of?

A couple of us did the same trip a couple weeks ago. Noticed you climbed up Grass Pond Mt which we did also. I can imagine the leaves and snow made the climb a lot more slippery and difficult than our climb.
Thanks for video!!

I have camped at that very same spot. Perfectly set for sunsets and sunrises!

On my first trip we camped on Grass Pond, we climbed Grass Pond Mountain straight from camp, circling well to the north to avoid any cliffs- but still hand over hand in places. 2 A-10's passed by straight out- man that looked like fun! The great camp at the dam was still there then... Wish I took more photos of it. And all the brass plaques to the family dogs under the flagpost at the landing from Hitchins pond. One by one they disappeared, till one time they were all gone... Why would anybody steal them? It must have been something in its day!.

Note that the lookout over the Dam is short but worthwhile and interesting, with views to the east and north over Hitchens pond. If you look around carefully, there is something from a bygone era up there... nothing great..just a reminder.
